Brokers & Scalpers

Tickets to all performances at the Norton Center are available exclusively from the theater’s own box office and website, http://www.nortoncenter.com. If you purchase tickets from a ticket broker, you may be paying a much higher price than necessary. Ticket brokers may make it appear that they have “special access” to the best seats, but all they do is purchase tickets from our box office and resell them to you at a markup. Even when a broker is operating within the law, you still pay much more than you need to and not one penny of the markup goes to the artist or the theatre. If there is anything wrong with your order purchased from a broker, the Norton Center cannot help because you did not purchase the tickets directly from the theatre.

Please be assured that the ONLY way to guarantee your Norton Center for the Arts tickets is to purchase them directly through the Norton Center by phone Toll Free at 1-877-HIT-SHOW, locally at 1-859-236-4692, or online at http://www.nortoncenter.com.

Student Tickets

From each student’s comprehensive fee, an amount is allotted to the Norton Center for the Arts, which entitles students to attend most performances in the Norton Center Series at no additional charge as long as seats are available. The Norton Center reserves a number of tickets to shows in Newlin Hall and the Weisiger Theatre for Centre student use each year.

When these student tickets have been exhausted, additional tickets may become available. For Norton Center Series shows that free student tickets are not offered or Norton Center-sponsored special events and non-Series performances, a special ticket price for Centre students may be offered as well as a designated timeframe to acquire tickets. All Centre College student tickets will be marked as such and are not transferable.

Student tickets for Norton Center Series performances are distributed approximately three weeks before each event on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets not claimed by students during the published three-day pickup period are released for sale to the general public and may no longer be available for students to pick up. In addition to his/her own ticket, each student may pick up a ticket for up to three additional Centre students by presenting each student’s valid Centre identification cards. No student tickets will be released unless a valid I.D. is shown to box office personnel when the tickets are picked up. Student tickets may be picked up at the Norton Center box office weekdays between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm or as instructed.

Notices will be sent to the student listserv to remind students of the designated pickup dates. If tickets are still available within the week prior to a performance date, the Norton Center may re-open the ticket pickup period for Centre students who had not picked up a ticket during the three-day pickup period. If this occurs, Norton Center staff will notify students with instructions. While many of the Norton Center Series performances are available for convocation credit, a show may sell out and tickets beyond what were offered during the pickup period may not be available, so please plan accordingly.

Norton Center Series performances are public events with audience members that include Centre faculty and staff, public officials, community leaders, parents, prospective students with their families, donors, and others who have paid full ticket price to participate. Students should represent Centre College with high esteem by dressing appropriately; not texting, using an electronic device, chewing gum or talking during a program; not entering or exiting the theatre or clapping at incorrect times; and respecting those around them. Inappropriate behavior could result in immediate removal from an event, loss of convocation credit and/or a student’s not being welcome to attend future Norton Center events.

Please consult the Centre student handbook or the student mailing that was sent to you over the summer for more specific information.

The Norton Center asks that all students attending performances, programs or presentations at the Norton Center observe the same rules as if they were attending a convocation for credit, including:

* Please turn off all cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices.
* Do not read, study, sleep, or put your feet up on the seats during the program or performance.
* Talking during programs and performances, including the question and answer portion unless instructed otherwise, is inappropriate and disturbs those patrons who have paid to attend the event.
* No eating or drinking, except bottled water, while inside Newlin Hall or the Weisiger Theatre.
* You are expected to be attentive and demonstrate mature, polite, and civil behavior. You not only represent yourself, but you also represent your peers, faculty, and staff of Centre College.

Finally, students exhibiting inappropriate behavior may be told to leave by members of the audience, faculty, staff, or student Convocation workers and will not receive credit if the event is a Convocation.
